It doesn't take a whole bunch to make a summer a summer to remember. A trip to the old Olympia Brewery for some "cousins" from Arizona, a good day fishing with the grand son at Long's Pond, a simple hike through the forest to the bend in the Skookumchuck River by the tracks where you used to skinny dip as a kid... there's so much more, so little time.
I love the fall in Washington State. It comes in unexpectedly and before you know it we're consumed by the fog, the mist, the 80 degree days and 30 degree nights. Fall opens the door for Washington's winter. Fall ensures those storms that have been held at bay by the summer are finally, finally given the opportunity to come ashore. And they do... wind, rain, sleet, trees down, rivers flooding, tides going awry... the fall.
